City to host Preston North End in pre-season friendly

City will begin preparations for the 2021/22 season by hosting a friendly match with Preston North End on Tuesday 27 July.

The game will take place at the Academy Stadium, with kick-off scheduled for 19:00 (UK).

It will also provide supporters with the chance to see our City stars donning the new 2021/22 home kit for the very first time.


Preston finished 13th in the Championship last season and will offer a stern test for Pep Guardiola’s side as we gear up towards our defence of the Premier League and Carabao Cup.

City embarked on an historic season across 2020/21, enjoying a 21-match winning run in all competitions from December-March en route to a league and cup double, as well as reaching a maiden Champions League final.

Information regarding ticketing will follow in due course.

Supporters will also be able to follow every kick of our clash with the Lilywhites courtesy of a CITY+ subscription, where you can also access full-match replays of all our Men's, Women's and selected EDS and Academy matches throughout the new season.
